The Republican Party Has Spent $0 On TV Ads For Trump After Spending $42 Million For Romney In 2012


With so much stacked against him, can Donald Trump pull off a miracle and actually win this election?  Right at this moment, things are looking quite grim for the Trump campaign.  Following the release of the lewd audio tape, six women have come forward and have accused him of doing the exact sorts of things that he admitted to on that tape, and the mainstream media is going after him with all they’ve got.  Of course the Clintons have done far worse things than Trump has, and that is the case that Trump must make to the American people in the last 25 days of this election.  But it certainly isn’t helping that Trump is receiving very little help from his own party.  In fact, earlier today Politico published an article entitled “RNC TV ad spending for Trump: $0” which documented the fact that the Republican National Committee has not spent a single penny on television advertising for Trump so far in 2016.

If the Republican National Committee had treated past candidates similarly, this wouldn’t be an issue.  But as Politico has pointed out, that definitely is not the case…

In 2004, the committee spent $18.2 million on independent expenditures — or IEs, in campaign parlance — boosting George W. Bush’s reelection bid. In 2008, the RNC’s IE spending surged to $53.5 million in support of John McCain’s campaign against Barack Obama. And in 2012, the RNC spent $42.4 million on IEs boosting Mitt Romney or opposing President Obama — with nearly 80 percent of the spending occurring before mid-October.

By contrast, this cycle the RNC has spent only $321,000 on independent expenditures attacking Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. And all of that spending occurred last fall — before Trump had emerged as the leader for the GOP presidential nomination.

This revelation comes at a time when the Trump campaign is in full-blown crisis mode.

Since the second debate, six different women have come forward with allegations that Trump either groped them or kissed them against their will.  The following summary of these allegations comes from the Daily Mail

Temple Taggert, who competed as Miss Utah in the 1997 Miss USA pageant claims that Trump kissed her on the lips against her will.

Cassandra Searles, who served as Miss Washington in the 2013 pageant, claims that Trump ‘grabbed her a**’ and invited her back to his hotel room during the competition.

Natasha Stoynoff was interviewing Trump at Mar-a-Lago back in 2005 when she claims that Trump began ‘forcing his tongue down [her] throat.’

Mindy McGillivray claims she was also at Mar-a-Lago when she was groped by Trump.

Rachel Crooks claims Trump kissed her on the lips against her will in 2005, and Jessica Leeds alleged that Trump sexually assaulted her on a plane three decades ago.

Are these allegations true?

I don’t know.  But it is certainly alarming that so many women have come forward and that their stories are so similar.

The one man that knows the truth about all of these claims is Donald Trump, and so far Trump is vehemently denying all of the accusations…

“The phony story in the failing @nytimes is a TOTAL FABRICATION. Written by same people as last discredited story on woman. WATCH!” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

He then went on a rant during his afternoon rally in West Palm Beach, Florida, reading off a teleprompter as he claimed, “these were nothing more than false smears,” “these claims are all fabricated,” and “these events never, ever happened.”

Trump attacked the integrity of his female accusers, saying “You take a look at these people…and you’ll understand also.”

Meanwhile, the Trump campaign intends to highlight the crimes of the Clintons as much as they can as we approach election day.  In particular, they plan to make a big issue out of the fact that Bill Clinton is a serial sexual predator

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign signaled Wednesday its strategy for combating allegations of sexual misconduct against the Republican nominee: fight fire with fire.

More specifically, the campaign reportedly said it would seek to paint former President Bill Clinton “as Bill Cosby,” the same day multiple women accused Trump of making unwanted sexual advances toward them.

The Trump campaign is promising to unveil some new accusers of Bill Clinton that have never been revealed before, and the National Enquirer is reporting that the Clinton campaign is scared to death that some of Hillary’s sexual scandals may be exposed to the public as well.

At this point, most Americans are not really pleased with either candidate.  Over these last several weeks, Trump will be trying to show how evil Clinton is, and Clinton will be trying to show how evil Trump is.

But Hillary Clinton has the full power of the mainstream media working for her, and so that is a massive advantage.

And the most recent polls in key battleground states have very good news for Clinton.  The following comes from CNN

A trio of state polls released this week show Hillary Clinton’s northern “blue wall” holding, as she carries commanding leads across a series of key states.

The polls — taken after the release of a 2005 recording of Donald Trump talking in a sexually aggressive manner about women — show Clinton leading in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Coupled with Democrats’ advantage in the Electoral College, the slate of polls suggests that only an extremely narrow path to the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency remains for Trump, who has staked his candidacy in part on flipping some traditionally Democratic states.

Right now Clinton is ahead of Trump by 7 points in Wisconsin, by 9 points in Pennsylvania, and by 11 points in Michigan.

If Trump plans to pull off a miracle, he has a whole lot of work to do.

And it certainly was not encouraging to hear that Trump has decided to pull out of Virginia in order to devote resources to other states.

Traditionally Virginia has been a key swing state, and so many are taking that as a very bad sign.

If you look at the electoral map, it is very, very difficult to see a path to victory for the Trump campaign at this point.  I know that is not what a lot of people want to hear, but it is the truth.

Trump could still prove me wrong by pulling off a historic miracle in November, but with each passing day that is looking less and less likely.

  1. Well, if (hopefully) Trump gets in, then FIRE all of the Republicans! They are nothing but fat blood suckers anyway and no different than the democrats there which should ALSO ALL BE FIRED. Clean the slate once and for all!!

  2. Sounds like Herman Cain all over again (who led the Republican polls, back in 2011, prior to bowing out, due to an alleged sex scandal…that mysteriously dissipated once he dropped out).

    Either way — the Church needs to continue praying for him and this nation. It will most certainly be an act of God if he gets elected.

  3. The deepest part of Hell is reserved. It is reserved for false testimony given by individuals against Jesus Christ. This tactic is old as the hills. Not surprised it is being used right now against Mr. Trump. Though Mr. Trump is no angel. He is not running against a saint.
    But what concerns me most is the lack of financial support by the so-called “Christian” party of the Republicans. If ever a party was in bed with the wrong individuals it has to be the current Republican Party. The financial means of this party can be traced to the richest people in this country. Including a whole lot of wealthy corporations, drug companies, the sugar industry, and more.
    Roe vs. Wade is many years old. It has caused many deaths of many children over the years. Yet it still stands whether or not the Republican Party is in office or not. The only explanation for that is they are in bed with the Democrats on this issue and it only comes up when there is an election to be had.
    Oath violators! The party cannot stand behind their own candidate. Gov. Kasich gave his promise to vote for whoever was nominated. When that nomination went to Trump he broke that oath. So did Ted. Now Ted has come to his senses. So the head of the party in the house of representatives is an oath breaker too?
    I am not surprised by their behavior.
    In my foolish youth, many things occurred before I became Christian in my beliefs.
    I urge Mr. Trump to become a born-again Christian. And pursue that belief in his political career. Miracles do happen. Three Christians praying on their knees in private can move mountains and it has happened many times in the past.
    I think his judgement is clouded. If he saw things as a Christian would see things a whole lot of things he has said would never have been said.
    A whole lot of policy statements would never have been made.
    The devil himself is guiding both parties at this point in time. That appears obvious.
    So you vote for Trump or you vote for Hillary. One is an obvious liar. The devil is the father of all lies. The other has been a playboy wealthy man most of his life and is well educated in the rules by which we govern the financial means of this country. Yes, he has been terrible in his earlier history. Yes he is on his third marriage that appears to be working out for him. He has children that have worked out good. That is the fruit of what he really is. At heart I think he is a good man.
    Of the two, Donald Trump might lead this country. The other candidate might take this country for all she is worth. But so might Trump.
    Trump will use the laws to do so. Hillary is likely by her past history to break laws to do so. So it really comes down to who we want in that office.
    The media needs its ownership changed. This terrible bias I see out there right now is all because they are owned body and soul by people that seek to influence for their own purposes. And they are blatant about it. They have no fear of the common people of this country and they have no respect for their ability to make decisions based on intelligence and logic. They are betting billions that we do not have the ability to see right from wrong.
    By that logic alone, people should vote Trump instead of Hillary.
